IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa will open the Battle 4 Atlantis holiday tournament in the Bahamas against Xavier on Thanksgiving day.

The winner of the Hawkeyes-Musketeers game on Nov. 28 will face either Texas-El Paso or Tennessee in the second round.

If Iowa were to reach the tournament final, it could end up facing star freshman Andrew Wiggins and Kansas.

The Hawkeyes and Musketeers last met in the Paradise Jam in the U.S. Virgin Islands in 2010. Xavier beat Iowa 86-73.
